Common Sense

He will have his shortcomings (who hasn’t), but Bolsonaro really gets it. His latest appeal to Brazilian citizen to go on and arm themselves is the thinking of a person who puts individual rights before the tyranny of the government.

Jesus went around with a security detail, and if you don’t believe me you are welcome to read the Gospel when you have time. If Jesus did not have any need of arms for self-defence and still wanted his disciples to carry a number of them, how can it be doubted that being armed for self-defence is an obvious, natural right of every man?

Bolsonaro is the more remarkable because he was, himself, stabbed by a criminal who almost put an end to his life. He could, were he not Bolsonaro, go around crying that there must be a strong control on arms of all types in order to avoid what has happened to him. Still, this guy loves common sense instead of common places, and does not seek the easy popularity of those hypocrites who live surrounded by walls but consider them unchristian.

We need to recover common sense and start spreading the word:

The apostles went around armed. I want the right to do the same.

    “Philistine ‘Gun Control’ Imposed on the Hebrews”.

    1 Kings {Samuel}:

    19 Now there was no smith to be found in all the land of Israel, for the Philistines had taken this precaution, lest the Hebrews should make them swords or spears.

    20 So all Israel went down to the Philistines, to sharpen every man his ploughshare, and his spade, and his axe, and his rake.

    21 So that their shares, and their spades, and their forks, and their axes were blunt, even to the goad, which was to be mended.

    22 And when the day of battle was come, there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people that were with Saul and Jonathan, except Saul and Jonathan his son.

  2. You bring up a topic that’s controversial because people tend to look at the past through the eyes of the present. We don’t carry knives because everywhere we go there’s knives if we need them. People back then had to carry their tools with them and a knife was a basic tool that people needed at some point. Which means Jesus carried a knife. How do you think He did His job as a carpenter without a knife? How do you think He cut up his food or killed, skinned and cleaned animals without a knife? How do you think He cut the ropes for His whip without a knife? It boggles the mind that people think that Jesus didn’t carry a knife.

    People also used knives to defend themselves. There’s no getting around the fact that Jesus told His disciples to do just that. People have taken Jesus’ words to Peter that “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword” to mean you can’t defend yourself. But God can’t contradict Himself which means ALL of His words are true – you can’t use a knife as a lifestyle choice to get your way but you can use a knife to protect yourself or others. If Jesus didn’t defend Himself or allow Peter to defend Him it’s because His time had come to die for us. What’s unbelievable is that Jesus would put Himself through that for us because we definitely are not worth it.
